Clairol Nice n Easy Colour Seal Conditioner
Advantages: Makes hair look healthy and well conditioned
Disadvantages: The tube only lasts twice instead of 3 times as stated
I recently dyed my hair dark brown with Clairol's Nice n' Easy hair dye, when I bought the kit it came with a tube of Colourseal Gloss conditioner, there was enough for 2 washes. After I had run out of the Colourseal conditioner I went back to using my usual conditioner but found that it made my hair quite greasy. I loved the feel of my hair after using the Colourseal conditioner so was very pleased when I found that my local Tesco sold the same conditioner.
The conditioner comes in a shiny brown foil tube with a white plastic lid which easily screws on and off. The tube has a silver strip across the top of it and just below this is the work Clairol written in silver writing. At the bottom of the tube are the words Nice n' Easy again written in silver letters. In the centre of the tube is a bit about the conditioner including the name of it "Colourseal Gloss for beautiful brunettes, intense conditioner for coloured hair" again as with the rest of the writing on the front of the tube this is also written in silver writing. On the back of the tube is various information including directions for use and the ingredients, this is all written in small white lettering which is a little tricky to read although not impossible. This tube of conditioner is designed to last 3 weeks, only using this conditioner for one wash a week, there is a scale on the back of the tube which indicates how much to use for each wash.
The conditioner itself looks basically the same as most conditioners, it is of a reasonably thick consistency and white in colour, it has quite a sweet fragrance, I'm not sure exactly what the fragrance us supposed to be but it reminds me of coconut and vanilla, but that is just my opinion of its fragrance. It is not too strong or overpowering but the fragrance does last giving your hair a lovely fresh smell, it does not fade after just a few hours as with a lot of conditioners.
Directions For Use
This conditioner is designed to be used once a week, the amount needed is indicated on the back of the tube, squeeze out the amount shown and apply to damp hair and leave for about 2 minutes. After 2 minutes rinse the conditioner from your hair using warm water, and then dry and style as usual.
This conditioner is an intensive conditioner and is designed to keep your hair colour vibrant between colourings. After I used this conditioner not only did my hair smell lovely it felt extremely soft and look shiny and healthy enhancing the colour. As I straighten my hair everyday this conditioner will help to keep my hair in better condition leaving it looking less damaged. The Clairol Nice n' Easy Colourseal Conditioner is designed to be used if you have coloured your hair with Nice n' Easy hair dye, the one I have is for brunettes however they also do one for blonde hair aswell as red hair so there is a Colourseal conditioner for everyone, it is recommended you use the correct one for you hair colour inorder to see the real benefits of it.
The only criticism I have with this conditioner is that personally I find that the conditioner only lasts for 2 washes rather than 3 as stated on the bottle, I find that if I only use the amount indicated on the tube it is no where near enough to thoroughly condition my hair. I find that half of the tube rather than a third is just the right amount to leave my hair in excellent condition. However my hair is long and thick, for someone with shorter thinner hair a third of the bottle would probably be the right amount. However this is not something that would stop me from using the conditioner on a regular basis.
As previously mentioned I bought my Clairol Colourseal Conditioner from Tesco, it cost £1.20 for a 30ml tube, this sounds like you do not get much for your money, however one tube will last 2 to 3 weeks so it does work out quite economical. Personally I feel this conditioner is worth the money just for the excellent condition it leaves my hair in.
Overall I would definitely recommend this conditioner especially if you have dyed your hair with Nice n' Easy hair dye (I'm not sure if it can be used on un-dyed hair) it really does what it says it will and keeps your colour looking vibrant, healthy and generally in good condition. I will definitely continue to use Clairol Colourseal intensive conditioner whilst I have my hair dye and would recommend it to anyone.
Summary: A lovely conditioner
